  • Summary: This is the debut album for the four-piece garage-rock band fronted by Kpt.Michi.Gan's Michael Beckett.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. Nine bracing blasts of terse, catchy noise-pop.
  2. The consistency of the record and The Beautiful New Born Children’s intensity is what sells this album.
  3. You won't listen to it again and again; yet the time you do, it'll be a blast. [4 Feb 2006, p.29]
  4. Lo-fi veneer aside, Beckett's songs could plausibly receive the same seven-word description as an Art Brut masterpiece-- funny lyrics shouted over basic rock riffage-- but here that's as meh as it sounds.
  5. There's something about the determinedly primal recording techniques and clunky, 'we-just-learnt-this-today!' instrumentation that doesn't ring true.
  6. The result is exactly what you'd expect: loud and hard garage rock devoid of personality or originality.
